Intracom Telecom has signed a contract to supply ProRail with its StreetNode 26GHz. The Dutch railway infrastructure operator has a network of 3000 km, as backhaul to CCTV and security/surveillance assets at the railway stations. The node system will be a complimentary means to fibre.

Intracom Telecom partnered with Dutch mobile ISP WiFi4ALL for the first phase of the project, for the supply of 21 hubs and 78 terminals. WiFi4ALL took care of all engineering, placement and configuration while Intracom Telecom performed the RF planning and supplied the equipment, which, for the first stage, was installed at 16 railway stations throughout the country, from Groningen to Maastricht. 

ProRail will use the system to monitor and manage crowd control. To achieve this, an advanced CCTV solution has been installed incorporating StreetNode to connect hundreds of IP cameras. The units relay all the collected video, data and alarm signals from the CCTV cameras to each of the station control rooms, all while preserving HD picture quality. Intracom Telecom's solution for ProRail’s network includes Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint software-defined radios for quick installation, high reliable and massive capacity for high quality HD video surveillance for smart cities, border and perimeter security, CCTV for railways and airport security.
